They'll really look the part delivering actual soldiers, fighting vehicles and all the supplies for an amphibious ready element when not cutting toenails and more serious medical conditions. The least of the HADR tasks being undertaken is medical support, and that's pretty normal. I fail to understand why we get obsessed with hospital ships when the greatest value of the LHDs is actually their flexibility.When I see our Canberra's being deployed for disaster missions, I do wonder if we should get several cheaper dedicated hospital ships instead.
